Baked White Bean “Meatballs”

It’s mid-January, and if you’re like me, you’ve likely been on the meal-prep train for the past few weeks. I whipped up these baked white bean “meatballs”—I wish there was a better word, but there isn’t, hence the quotes—and woah, SO GOOD. So easy, so much flavor, and an all-around crowd pleaser.

Sweet and Spicy BBQ Beans (Instant Pot Friendly)

Sweet and Spicy BBQ Beans

For years I’ve heard about Britain’s obsession with beans on toast, beans on baked potatoes, beans on everything!

What if they were tomato-y, and only slightly sweet, […]

Vegan Overnight Oatmeal Cookies

Vegan Overnight Oatmeal Cookies

Last week my mom sent me a recipe from The Kitchn for Overnight Oat Cookies. She wanted me to play around with the ingredients to see if I could find a healthier alternative, because I have to say, those cookies are not breakfast friendly, despite the author’s claims. Instead of using a cup and a […]

Let me tell you about this roasted veggie sheet pan salad, and why you’ll want to be making it at least once a week. First of all, it’s very hands off, but still has tons of flavor, texture, and nutrients, which on busy nights is always a win. As advertised, most of the ingredients are […]
